Marni Nixon

I initially planned to send this only to my mother, but then I wondered if the rest of you knew.

I had no idea she even exists!  Did you??

"Marni is one of those unsung heroes (or should I say "much sung" heroes) whose incredible talents were given short shrift at the time. For those who think film superstars such as Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood, and Audrey Hepburn possessed not only powerhouse dramatic talents but amazing singing voices as well...think again. Kerr's Anna in The King and I (1956), Natalie's Maria in West Side Story (1961), and Audrey's Eliza in My Fair Lady (1964) were all dubbed by the amazing Marni Nixon, and nowhere in the credits will you find that fact."

I'm just a little bit sad about it.

I might want this book.  You should watch the little movie.
